Forest lakes is a 4.5 acre well established fishery set in beautiful surroundings in the heart of the Limousine
The lake was first dug in the early part of the 20th century
Our superb venue features 4 mature lakes set in the picturesque Kent countryside near Chilham. Situated just off the A28 Canterbury to Ashford road we offer Specimen Carp and general Coarse Fishing in a well maintained and comfortable environment.
We aim to create the best environment for both the wildlife and our members on our fisheries. Going the opposite way to commercialised fisheries, we are keeping MKF as a typical old school fishing club which our members love.
Since 1928 The Association has been managing extensive fisheries in the Stour Valley below Canterbury, offering first class lake and river fishing for a variety of species. The historic and famous stretch of the River Stour, which the Association leases from the Fordwich United Charities, reaches downstream from Fordwich Bridge as far as Plucks Gutter. Fordwich trout were referred to in Izaak Waltons The Compleat Angler, their descendants are still running up the river to spawn, when the conditions are right for them.
We have a constitutional rule to promote opportunities for angling in Sandwich and the surrounding area. Today our managed fisheries provide top class fishing in East Kent on two still waters.
These waters provide mixed fishing in a quality environment for all anglers, including families, match fishermen and specimen hunters.
We believe annual membership of SDAA provides quality fishing at fantastic value and we welcome all responsible anglers. Originally looking after the The Reed Ponds we also used to have a thriving Sea fishing section.
We were responsible for the design and creation of Swallowbrook Lake back in 1992, the work of a few turning a green-field site into a gem of a Fishery for us all to enjoy.
